Overall the school is very good and the teachers are good. The front office staff need to be more courteous and helpful to parents with students at the school. I could not help but notice the last 7 positive reviews where all done on December 8th which give me much speculation that school staff members are posting positive responses to previous criticisms of the school and the most compelling evidence is all the reviews where done on December 8th. Gee what a coincidence 7 positive reviews all on the same day... Wow.

Handles bullying effectively: Agree

There's always some degree of bullying at every school level....most kids honestly need to toughen up and parents need to realize that dealing with the bulk of this is home issue...not school. It's nonsense stuff mostly. Someone googled my Ex's home and told my daughter they couldn't be friends with her because her house was too small! This kind of nonsense comes from some pretentious parents. My daughter was in tears until she went back the next day and told the girl that unlike her her parents owned 70 houses as rentals but that they could still be friends if she wanted. Classic....the girls are still friends several years later. My son has been on the other side of it...as the aggressor. The school and after school program worked with us to get him straight!

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
My son had an early speech impediment and went to speech class for his 1st 2 years at school. He improved dramatically in that time period and no longer needs assistance. We have several other friends with kids with learning disabilities and all have been pleased with how the school has worked with them.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Led by a very passionate Principal...some fail to realize that her hands are tied in some areas and that the capital budget has been restricted. Parents donate a ton of time & funds to support her. The administration here is very involved and hands-on

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
I'm active in the school and in coaching basketball....watching these kids develop over time is impressive to say the least. My kids grew tremendously being a part of this school's program.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Couldn't ask for any better teachers.....all great communicators...some in this school are the best I've ever seen

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Just amazing teachers....I wish I had this caliber of teacher growing up. Very involved with homework in and out of class....especially through the website

Murdock has an incredible staff with very strong parent involvement and support. Very strong advanced learning opportunities here. The principal here is deeply involved in the school as is the rest of her staff. My son started here and is doing very well...the results speak for themselves....same with my daugher who is now in middle school but attended here. Top student and very well rounded from attending Murdock



- a
For the most part the teachers are fantastic. The principal on the other hand is mostly defensive and not helpful and sets the tone for the rest of the administration that follows her lead. Instead of finding solutions to issues the administration will cover things up and usually just be defensive about everything. The answer is usually you can't do that instead of this is what you need to do. Its not hard to just be honest, transparent, and be a leader that provides solutions. This is not politics,,, its education,,,

Handles bullying effectively: Neutral

there is some bullying but not a lot and you will find this in a lot of schools.
